I added a new State for the Country 'Canada' in Setup -> State and Country/Territory Picklists. The State is 'BC' and StateCode is 'BC2'. See the image below for how it looks:

enter image description here

Now that 'BC' is a valid State, I should be able to update an address field with the State = 'BC' but I am getting the following error:

First exception on row 0 with id 00Q1b000004oxi1EAA; first error: FIELD_INTEGRITY_EXCEPTION, There's a problem with this state, even though it may appear correct. Please select a state from the list of valid states.: State/Province: [State]

    Did you set the appropriate country as well? If you fail to do so, you'd get this error.

  • @sfdcfox I added the State by clicking 'Edit' beside Canada, then Add State. How do I set the appropriate country? Unless you mean that before setting the Lead's State to 'BC', I set the Country to 'Canada', which I did

  • @sfdcfox I did get it so that 'BC' is available under the 'State' picklist when I go to a Lead record which I didn't have working before. But i am still getting that error when updating the State through Apex. Any idea what might cause that? Thanks for your help!

  1. State integration values must match with State code. enter image description here

  2. You need to set country as well while creating record as shown below

    Account objAccount = new Account(Name='Sample',

    INSERT objAccount;
